Professor Andrew J. deMello is currently Professor of Biochemical Engineering in the Department of Chemistry and Applied Biosciences at ETH Zurich. Prior to his arrival in Zurich, he was Professor of Chemical Nanosciences at Imperial College London. He obtained a 1st Class Degree in Chemistry and PhD in Molecular Photophysics from Imperial College London in 1995 and subsequently held a Postdoctoral Fellowship in the Department of Chemistry at the University of California, Berkeley. His research interests cover a broad range of activities in the general area of microfluidics and nanoscale science. Andrew has given over 400 invited lectures at conferences and universities in North America, Europe, Africa and Asia (including over 100 plenary or keynote lectures), has published 375 papers in refereed journals, and co-authored two books. He is currently an Associate editor for ACS Sensors and sits on the Editorial Boards of Advanced Materials Technologies, Chem and Molecular Systems Design & Engineering. He is also co-founder of two spin out companies that commercialize microfluidic technologies. Science originating from the deMello group has been recognized through multiple awards, including the 2002 SAC Silver Medal (Royal Society of Chemistry), the 2009 Clifford Paterson Medal (Royal Society), the 2009 Corday Morgan Medal (Royal Society of Chemistry), the 2012 Pioneers of Miniaturization Lectureship (Royal Society of Chemistry), the 2020 Advances in Measurement Science Lectureship Award (American Chemical Society), the 2021 Simon-Widmer Award (Swiss Chemical Society) and a 2021 Mendel Lectureship (Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic).

Saltanat Toiganbayeva

Saltanat was born in Kazakhstan. In 2015, Saltanat obtained a BSc Degree in Chemical Engineering in 2015. In 2017, she graduated from Queen Mary University of London with a MSc degree in organic synthesis, where she worked on synthesis of amino acids and their incorporation into TRH peptides. After completing her Masters, Saltanat decided to continue her research as a PhD student at Queen Mary University of London, where she is working on synthesis of fully fluorinated ligands for lanthanide complexes with application in fiber optics, bioimaging and biosensing.
